It is a long-standing tradition in African American families to indulge in a family or conmmunal New Year's Day dinner featuring cabbage or greens, which symbolize greenbacks (paper money),black-eyed peas which smbolize coins and both giving good luck for the new year. Our family New Year tradition brings the whole family together
(5 generations) and sharing the first meal of the year with a traditional soul food dinner.

This month I will only feature three recipes but they are some goodies.
Collard Greens, Fried Cabbage and Black-Eyed Peas.
